Birthday greetings! You have a rich and promising year ahead, though a lot of progress won't be obvious for several months. Be persistent but not belligerent and you will mostly get your way. You may suffer a touch of self-doubt and self-criticism in the fall, but stay strong and don't give up on anything important to you. You care deeply about others. Don't be distracted by illusions they may have about you. A new admirer may surprise you in early spring. Be open and willing to have a good talk, but follow your heart about intimacy. Indulge in a burst of fresh energy and luck as your birthday year ends.
